If you think prison life is easy now, you need to stop by the Yuma Prison and get a feel for real prison comfort. Prison like it should be. A well preserved site.

Great place for a picnic and then enjoy the history. Wagons from yesteryear and other memorabilia from long ago are the highlights. But check out the information and talk to the really helpful people to plan your next adventure.

This is a lovely park. Quiet, peaceful, and close to town. Great place to escape to for a few hours. Nice shaded areas and a cool gathering place.

A nice place to spend an hour or so. Historic buildings, old wagons, cars, and a train car. A nice glimpse into they way things were.

Besides the State Park, there is a very helpful Visitor Information Center with lots of maps and pamphlets plus live people to assist you. And easy and adequate parking! There are a few old wagons, battle uniforms and view-thru-glass only rooms of early settler times. Unless you are looking for something specific there - very average.
